Luke 7:18-23

And the disciples of John shewed him of all these things.

19And John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to Jesus, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?

20When the men were come unto him, they said, John Baptist hath sent us unto thee, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?

21And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight.

22Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.

23And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.

Are you embarrassed about being a Christian? Many people are. Based upon their behavior and lifestyles you sometimes cannot tell whether they are Christians or not. They hide their Christianity before the world but in secret claim to be followers of Christ. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a secret Christian, because Christianity is a lifestyle, not just a set of beliefs that one assents to. It is not just dogmas, doctrines, or creeds. It is a life where the evidence of your Christianity is reflected in the life you live, and the works you do. People should be able to tell by your actions who you are, and the type of faith you have. Very little good works=very little faith. Life filled with good works=life of faith. So, are you a Christian? If you are then show it!
